Our Cartoon President. That’s the voice of Lower Moreland High School grad Jeff Bergman as President Trump in this animated show, produced by CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert, that’s not nearly as vicious as Colbert’s monologues. Premieres with two back-to-back episodes, the first of which is already available online and On Demand, with more than 1 million views on YouTube alone. 8 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.

Homeland. The seventh season opens with President Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) still at war with the intelligence community she blames for the attempt on her life. As Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) works to free the 200 people the president had arrested, her old boss, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), gets an offer from an unexpected quarter. 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.

Here and Now. New dramedy from Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, True Blood) stars Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins as the heads of a multiethnic family in Portland, Ore., trying to cope with a variety of challenges, including a grown son (Daniel Zovatto) who’s suddenly started seeing things no one else can. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

We’ll Meet Again. The Ann Curry-hosted show this week features the reunions of people who met for the first time on the day of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. 8 p.m. Tuesday, WHYY12.

This Close. A streaming original for Valentine’s Day: Six-episode dramedy on SundanceTV’s subscription service Sundance Now stars its creators, Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman, as best friends Kate and Michael. She’s straight, he’s gay, they’re both deaf, and their relationship may be strained by Kate’s recent engagement, which comes on the heels of Michael’s breakup with his own fiance. Wednesday, Sundance Now.

Mozart in the Jungle (Feb. 16, Amazon). In the fourth season of the classical-music comedy, Hailey (Lola Kirke) is working to be taken seriously as a conductor while the maestro Rodrigo (Gael Garcia Bernal), now officially her boyfriend, tries to keep his own mojo alive. The show’s always been a human-resources nightmare, but I can’t wait to have it back.
